Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) is excited to announce its next performance in the Performing Arts Series, Cirque Ã‰loize Saloon – A Musical Acrobatic Adventure, a spectacle packed full of music, acrobatics, choreography, drama and sheer entertainment. Stage London has called it “Cirque du Soleil’s hipper, sexier cousin.â€ The show is Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in the college’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater.
In Cirque Ã‰loize Saloon, the infectious energy of folk music sets the tone to an acrobatic comedy that sweeps the spectators away in a mad rush. Enigmatic, colorful characters come together and reveal themselves, resulting in a series of unexpected situations, unfolding to the rhythm of acrobatic prowess and original choreographies.
Under the spell of the saloon’s beautiful Belle, the lover sets off a chase worthy of the greatest Westerns. The lovebirds on the run wreak havoc everywhere on their path; from the deserted plains to the depth of the minesâ€” until the ultimate acrobatic showdown. Walking through Saloon’s doors means entering a mythical atmosphere created by live music and the exhilarating pace of spectacular performances.
Positioned at the heart of the renewal of circus arts, Cirque Ã‰loize has been creating moving performances filled with magic and emotion since 1993. The organization specializes in the conception, production and distribution of emotionally engaging environments. Its mission is to bring guests closer together by fulfilling people’s need for meaningful entertainment, while ceaselessly pushing the limit of performing arts as a whole.
